According to officials, former rap impresario Marion “Suge” Knight and comedian Micah “Katt” Williams were arrested Wednesday, October 29 after allegedly stealing a camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills in September.
They were both charged with one count of robbery in connection with the September 5 incident, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office stated.
Knight was arrested on Wednesday in Las Vegas, and Williams was arrested at an Inglewood court house where he was due for an arraignment in a separate case.
Beverly Hills police Sgt. Max Subin said the investigation began on September 5 after they walked out of a studio and came across a photographer. Allegedly, they chased the woman down an alley, where Williams grabbed her camera “forcibly,” Subin said. The woman sustained minor injuries.
Police arrived on scene but Knight and Williams were already gone. Subin said detectives were still trying to locate a man and woman who were with Knight and Williams at the time of the incident.
Lt. Lincoln Hoshino said detectives spent weeks building the case in order to obtain the arrest warrants. They also called it “ongoing, rapidly evolving investigation.”
“We’re still working the case.”
